The Curator (ISR 2011, HD, 4 Min. 25 Sek., enOF)
The Curator draws a glamourous and grotesque picture of the art world, where the curator reigns supreme. The film offers a “behind-the-scenes” look into an impulse-ridden world that is often perceived as a detached, elitist bubble dominated by people who wish to gain prestige by means of artworks and artists.
